Tragic footage of Muay Thai boxer Jordan Coe has emerged where his love of the sport shines through.

The 25-minute interview, filmed in 2015 and available on Youtube, features the 20-year-old discussing his start in the sport, his pre-match build-up and preparation, and his students back home in Grangemouth.

Jordan (20) was found dead at the weekend. It is believed he died as a result of heatstroke having been running wearing a ‘heavy suit’ in warm temperatures as preparation for his next bout – which had been scheduled for last night.

In the interview he discusses his nutrition and weight-loss plans ahead of fights, and also highlights the talents of one of his local fighters back home in Grangemouth’s Carnage Gym – European champion Erin Kowal.

Tributes have poured in for the tragic fighter, with shock expressed from around the world, and closer to his Maddiston home.
